Mil-Arc 13 is a high chrome carbide hardfacing electrode that forms ultra smooth deposits for extended wear life. With the extra alloying ingredients and grain tighteners, Mil-Arc 13 gives you a hard and tough deposit that will withstand an impact. The extremely low coefficient of friction is what allows the abrasive media to slide over the surface. Some of the applications include: coke pusher shoes, muller plows and tires, foundry sand equipment, hot roller dies, pug mill knives, tamper feet, shredder knives, augers, screws, scrapers, shovels, crusher rolls, chutes, conveyor flights, exhaust fan blades, plow shoes, etc. Mil-Arc 13 can be used in almost any application within the earth-moving industries. Mil-Arc 13 is design for a two pass maximum build, but it can be inner-alloyed with Mil-Arc 56. You can also use it as a hardfacing cap over Mil-Arc 50 or Mil-Arc 54. Consider Mil-Mig 113 for your continuous wire needs.


Mil-Arc 13 operates best using DCEP, although it runs smoothly on AC. Prepare the surface by removing any damaged and fatigued metal. You should keep amperage as low as possible that will maintain a smooth, consistent arc. Use stringer beads. For high alloys and heavy sections, preheat as per base metal recommendations.
